Items 4.5 and 4.6. Motion made, seconded and approved these items. Motion carried 5-0-0
Item 4.2 Question about which positions are expected to be filled during the summer. (this is the item about allowing the Superintendent to appoint positions during the summer)
There will 4 elementary school principal positions open, and maybe filled, this summer (after the vote on 4.3 tonight), plus 2 middle school principals and some others; AP openings, special ed, etc.
Gary Eberhart requested the board not take action on this item. The suggestion was that they do call another meeting in July and feels it is a key responsibility of the board to approve the candidates. Dick Allen added that in the past there have been issues with candidates that needed to be explored more fully. He seemed to have concern that no names were presented to the board prior to the meeting. The board agreed to table this item.
5 candidates recommended by Superintendent:
-Linda Pete - Administrator at Diablo Community Day School (currently at YV)
-Dr. Christopher Nugent - appointed Mt. Diablo ElementaryPrincipal (comes with experience from Tennessee and California. Has elementary and middle school Principal experience. Is a co-administrator in Elk Grove currently.) (update 7/5/10, Dr. Nugent has resigned)
-Vicki Eversole - appointed Highlands Elementary Principal (currently a Program Specialist in the district)
-Rachel Buckner - Olympic / Alliance (currently a counselor in another district)
-Danielle Beachum (not sure on last name spelling) - Program Specialist - district wide
All were confirmed and approved by the board, some were in the audience and stood to say a few words.
Meeting adjourned approximately 6:25pm with thoughts to Kathy Wells, former teacher at Sequoia who passed away last week.
Another meeting in late July will likely be called to appoint any new administrators.
